There are days where you feel, meaningful. There are days where you feel, insignificant. I got some career advice/feedback from a friend today.
What I learned, thanks to the impressively humble David Homan is that achievement isn’t a zero sum game, an incredible reminder. Sometimes you can be happy and proud of who you are, while also finding yourself simply in awe of what amazing people can do and make possible.
#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for the (albeit) short time spent together this evening. To say it was life changing would be accurate but cliche. To say it was life recalibrating is less cliche but just as accurate.
Time for bed. I have a lot of ground to make up tomorrow (and … forever.)
I’m thinking a lot about teams, teamwork, collaboration, and my role on the various professional and personal teams I’ve been on and am currently on. It’s a function of being a year removed from such an amazing experience LiveIntent and onto an equally extraordinary experience Help Scout. The timing, I mean. Today I read a great ESPN article about Pete Carroll, Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson and it took me back to the first time I had heard of Peter Carroll’s Win Forever Pyramid — whic was after I’d heard of the Pyramid of Trust and perhaps my favorite, John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success. http://fromanativeson.com/…/JohnWoodenPyramid-of…
It resonated. Not only the pyramid and its layers and levels, but his definition of success. “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of being.”
#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for all this stuff. I love these models and frameworks and ways of thinking. And these are the kinds of things we all know, but we often forget, which therefore benefits from a not infrequent reminder.
